This is a press release from Microsoft received on February 5, 2024:

“Did you know that 21% of Canadian parents underestimate their teens’ exposure to online risks? Today, on Safer Internet Day, Microsoft released the results of a survey that explores overall perceptions and attitudes toward online safety, including information from Canada.

More information below:

It is important to note that the survey results show that young people trust their parents and turn to them for support and advice about online risks. To help them with their conversations, Microsoft is releasing new resources to help parents and children, especially teens, with their online activities.

One such resource is Minecraft Education’s “Good Game.” With Minecraft being one of the best-selling games in the world, Good Game combines the fun and creativity of gaming with an educational adventure to teach players the responsibilities, tools, responses, and strategies they will need to protect themselves and others from negative or disruptive behaviors encountered online. Here you’ll find the announcement from the Xbox Wire blog, which includes a trailer and images to give a good look at the game. Feel free to visit Minecraft Education to learn more about its game-based approach to learning, its global impact, and interesting stories from the community.

For a detailed description of the overall results, visit the Microsoft blog. To learn more about the resources available to parents and educators, check out Microsoft’s blog here.”
